Dive Number: 509 02/11/2013 Seal Colony, Andersen Inlet, Wilsons Promontory
Water Temp: ??c
Max Depth: 8m
Details: After the dive at Suicide Point (and giving up on the chase of a humpback and calf that disappeared off the horizon), we popped over to Andersen Inlet to view the Seal Colony. In the distance you could see the massive granite boulder island covered in black specks. As we got closer the black specks started turning into a landslide of movement as the seals spotted out boat and tumbled down the granite slopes into the water. They were so excited to have company and within minutes the boat was surrounded by hundreds of playful seals leaping and and peaking up out of the water at us. The numbers were truly astounding and the behaviour was priceless to watch. Diving with them was just as fun!
